Because I love styling dressier pieces with much more casual pieces, I often default to adding a touch of denim into the look to link the two themes, which is what I did for this outfit. The ruffled blouse, long black coat, and black boots seemed a bit dressy on their own, so adding a bit of rugged, frayed denim brought the look back down to easy, everyday wear. A nicely worn in pair of true blue denim cut-offs is a great piece for any girl to have in her wardrobe. They instantly bring a cool, yet completely unexpected factor to most any look. Just add a pair of tights, and they can be your best friend, even through the chillier seasons.
